This is the 3rd year of bloom I have had in the 3 years I have had this type of Canna. It increases and creates offshoots but at a slow pace, which is what I like. The colors are gorgeous. It has consistently bloomed in the late May/early June timeframe. One note though: Some of my canna's that bloom in the Spring also will bloom in Fall but this one does not. I don't mind though, it's pretty enough...I'll wait again for next year.

This canna is easy to start from seed and from my experience will be true to the parent plant.
